If you’ve been contemplating the idea of leaving the city for more peace and quiet, more space, and a small-town feel, this can actually be accomplished at a new building about a half hour away. One500 – located in Teaneck, NJ – offers a full suite of indoor and outdoor amenities, and a super charming neighborhood setting. A number of New Yorkers (including Upper West Siders) have already moved in.
One of those new residents is Benji Klein, an Upper West Side native who most recently lived on 91st and Broadway with his wife Arielle.
They loved everything about the UWS, and still do. But when the pandemic hit, the couple went into quarantine and started contemplating life with a larger apartment and more fresh air.
Already familiar with Teaneck, the Klein’s did some research and discovered One500.
“We rented a two bedroom, two bath apartment with about 1100 square feet,” said Arielle. “We love the clean, modern style of the apartment, but the outdoor space was the most important thing for us after being quarantined for so long. We have a balcony that we love and the private courtyard is incredible. We invited some friends over and they told us it’s like we’re living in a resort.”
The couple is also enjoying their new neighborhood. “There are great restaurants and lots of options for everything,” said Arielle, also noting that they’re “in the suburbs but close enough to Manhattan.”
The Kleins already have a built-in social base, as two other couples they’re friends with from the Upper West Side have also moved into One500.

“There’s a discernable shift in the marketplace right now from crowded urban areas to suburban, low-density settings with more open space,” said Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors. “One500 and its Teaneck address perfectly fits the bill, and its widespread appeal is immediately translating to impressive leasing velocity.”
